The giant wine barrels have been transformed into luxury hotel rooms and they’re right in the heart of a vineyard

The wine barrels have been transformed into glamping pods

The Wine House Hotel – Quinta da Pacheca , in Portugal’s famous Douro Valley, has transformed a series of its giant wine barrels into cosy hotel rooms, so you can sleep in the heart of the vineyard.     Basically, it’s the ultimate glamping experience for any wine connaisseur.   The wine barrels are nestled amidst the Quinta da Pacheca vineyard, meaning that guests can open up the doors and enjoy unrivalled views of the breathtaking landscape.

Inside, there’s everything you need for a comfortable stay; a large double bed, a shower room, sink and toilet.   It’s got a rustic chic vibe thanks to the wooden interiors, but still plenty of little luxurious touches for a luxury feel.

 Just look at those views

The Wine House Hotel also offers more conventional rooms inside its main building, a restored 18th century home, with double beds and ensuite bathrooms.

 Guests can enjoy beautiful views of the vineyard

 Oh, and yes – the hotel does offer guided tours of its vineyard as well as a host of wine tastings.   Foodies can also get their fill thanks to the picnics and cooking classes on offer.

Sounds like bliss.

There’s loads to see and do in the area too whether you’re hoping to enjoy views of the Douro River or learn more about the local history and culture at the Douro Museum.

Although the hotel is within walking distance of some of these attractions, you may want to consider hiring a car for ease and convenience.

Feeling tempted? You can find stays from £155 per night on Booking.com .
